Sweet Pepper, Gypsy Queens (Organic)

Capsicum annum. Lime Green to Red. 70 days.

Wonderful, early sweet red pepper that is our effort at dehybridizing “a popular hybrid.” Elongated, tapered fruit are similar to Hungarian sweet peppers. Starts out a lime green color, ripens to red with good flavor at any stage. Now in its sixth season of selection, it is uniform with some purposeful slight variation. We have narrowed the population down to two similar fruit types, a blunt tip and a pointy tip type. Both taste excellent and are very productive. We hope to continue to improve the selection in future years, although it is pretty far along in the process already. Gypsy Queens has repeatedly performed well in on-farm variety trials in the Pacific Northwest. A superb short season market pepper.

Geographical Origin

,

Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Up pot seedlings into 4” pots when they have their first two true leaves. Transplant out into the garden after danger of frost has passed, typically late May in western Oregon.

Seed Saving

To save seed, wait until fruit is fully ripe. Remove seeds from fruit and dry. Isolate from other pepper varieties of the same species by at least 500 feet.
